The Distributive Property
```The Distributive Property
The distributive property is mental
math strategy that can be used when
multiplying.
43 x 5 =?
Break apart the double-digit
number.
43 x 5 =?
40
+
3
Then multiply each part by 5.
43 x 5 =?
40
x5

3
x5
Then multiply each part by 5.
43 x 5 =?

x5 x5
200 + 15
= 215
Let’s look at another example.
53 x 6 = ?
Break apart the double-digit
number.
53 x 6 = ?
Break apart the double-digit
number.
53 x 6 = ?
50
+
3
Multiply each part by 6.
53 x 6 = ?
50
x6

3
x6
Multiply each part by 6.
53 x 6 = ?
50

300 + 18 = 318
There are three steps to the
distributive property.
4 x 28 =
There are three steps to the
distributive property.
4 x 28 =
1) Break apart the double-digit number.
There are three steps to the
distributive property.
4 x 28 = 4 x (20 + 8)
1) Break apart the double-digit number.
There are three steps to the
distributive property.
4 x 28 = 4 x (20 + 8)
1) Break apart the double-digit number.
2) Multiply each part by 4. (distribute the 4)
There are three steps to the
distributive property.
4 x 28 = 4 x (20 + 8) = (4 x 20) + (4 x 8)
1) Break apart the double-digit number.
2) Multiply each part by 4. (distribute the 4)
There are three steps to the
distributive property.
4 x 28 = 4 x (20 + 8) = (4 x 20) + (4 x 8)
1) Break apart the double-digit number.
2) Multiply each part by 4. (distribute the 4)
3) Sum the two products.
There are three steps to the
distributive property.
4 x 28 = 4 x (20 + 8) = 80 + (4 x 8)
1) Break apart the double-digit number.
2) Multiply each part by 4. (distribute the 4)
3) Sum the two products.
There are three steps to the
distributive property.
4 x 28 = 4 x (20 + 8) = 80 +
32
1) Break apart the double-digit number.
2) Multiply each part by 4. (distribute the 4)
3) Sum the two products.
There are three steps to the
distributive property.
4 x 28 = 4 x (20 + 8) = 80 +
32 = 112
1) Break apart the double-digit number.
2) Multiply each part by 4. (distribute the 4)
3) Sum the two products.
The word “distribute” means
“to give out.”
